Želimir Žilnik (born in Niš in 1942; currently living and working in Novi Sad) has written and directed numerous feature and documentary films which have reaped many awards at domestic and international film festivals. Žilnik is renowned as an initiator of the "docudrama" genre. From the very beginning his films have focussed on contemporary issues, featuring social, political and economic assessments of everyday life. Žilnik was along with a.o. Dušan Makavejev and Karpo Godina one of the key figures in the Yugoslav 'Black Wave'.
